Giovanna Fletcher had her Instagram followers in hysterics on Sunday after she posted a photo of husband Tom and the couple's eldest son Buzz heading to the shops to buy some 'essentials'. In the tongue-in-cheek snap, their little boy is beaming as he holds a newly-bought copy of Peppa Pig Magazine, with Tom grinning beside him while holding a bottle of white wine. "Shopping trip to get the essentials... Peppa Pig magazine and wine! #parents xx," the author wrote in the accompanying caption.

The snap proved all too relatable for the mums and dads who follow the star on Instagram, with many taking to the comments to admit they too had been in similar situations and to thank Giovanna for sharing it in a light-hearted way. "Got my daughter a Thomas the Tank mag and wine for me too," quipped one user, while another praised the couple for their down-to-earth approach, writing: "Do you know what I like about you two @tomfletcher @mrsgifletcher, although you have a celebrity life you live a normal family life. All credit to you both."

Tom revealed he was staying home instead of going to the BRITs

"I'm packing a face mask for the book tour... why blooming not!" she captioned a snap of her overnight bag. "Two nights in a hotel room without my boys... but just think of the uninterrupted sleep I'm going to get! Will I finally sleep through the night for the first time in years?! Maybe, maybe not. My weak bladder will probably make sure I don't get too smug about the whole thing and insist on endless loo trips. Xx."
